Sometimes Mother Nature is wise and wonderful. Sometimes she’s a nasty old hag in need of improvement from modern medicine. Case in point: Seasonique.
(Warning to the men: I’m about to discuss the female reproductive system. Steel yourself!)
Seasonique is the birth control pill that produces only four periods per year, i.e. every three months. The research indicates that it’s as safe and effective as monthly-cycle pills.
I just finished my first three-month pack. I suffered absolutely no ill effects. From what my doctor told me, it’s actually a lower dose of hormones than my prior pill (Ortho/Novum 135).
This pill does not merely eliminate the hassle of the monthly period, this particular pill allows a woman to have more sex. And here at NoodleFood, we’re all in favor of that. Hence, this post.
